Do you know someone who has done many great things to support Sunol Glen School? Each year a person is awarded the "Vivian Scheib Award" for outstanding volunteer work at the school. You can nominate someone by completing a form in the school office and turning it back in no later than May 16th. The winner will receive the award at the annual Volunteer Tea on June 1 in the school cafeteria.

Mark your calendars for May 18 because it's going to be a big night at Sunol Glen School. The schools talented music students from third, fourth and fifth grades, along with the advanced band members, will be performing their Spring Concert at 6:30 in the Auditorium. Then it's the school's annual Open House, which follows the concert at 7:00 p.m. The school is also holding a Scholastic Book Fair from May 18 to May 23. You may purchase books in the library during the day, at lunch or after school only or during Open House.

It's called re-gifting; you know those items we receive as gifts throughout our lives that we really don't have any use for but don't have the heart to throw away. Well, now is the time to gather those never-before-used-gifts and donate them to the Sunol Community Club's Spring Fling being held on June 4. Donated items are still needed for this wonderful fundraiser. Besides having a live and silent auction, there will be hors devours and wine tasting from local wineries. The Sunol Community Club has provided the school with many much-needed items such as purchasing desk, books, computers and flags; and provided funding for students to attend field trips. This fundraiser is a great way to give back to the school and the community. Please contact Brigit Craig at 925-803-9150 for more information.
Several local environmental groups will be holding a joint meeting on May 17 at 6:30 at the Kilkare Woods Clubhouse located at 12051 Glenora Way. Save Our Sunol, Stop The Dump and the Alameda Creek Alliance groups will be meeting to discuss the Apperson Ridge Quarry Project.
Little Brown Church of Sunol members will gather on Sunday to bid farewell to Pastor Ron Hunt & Lisa Hunt as they are moving back to Ron's home state of Minnesota. Church leaders are currently seeking an interim minister while they prepare for the lengthy process of finding a permanent minister. Good luck to you Ron and Lisa; you will surely be missed by many. And on a personal note, I wish you peace.
